Blessing of the Animals

  • St Francis Winery 100 Pythian Road Santa Rosa, CA, 95409 United States (map)


Bring your furry friends, scaley sidekicks, aquatic acquaintances, and friends of the animal kingdom and join us at St. Francis Winery & Vineyards for our annual Blessing of the Animals, a day to honor and enjoy nature in all its glory. Take part in this fun-filled afternoon to help raise much-needed funds* for the Humane Society of Sonoma County. The day’s festivities include the popular “Winery Dog of the Year” dog show and contest, St. Francis wines and local fare, a silent auction, raffle prizes and of course a blessing for every animal that attends. For the past 19 years, attendance has grown at this memorable affair, making it one of Sonoma Valley’s most memorable engagements.
